Room Type: Balcony

This was my husband's first cruise so we made it one of the shorter cruises.  The departure port is closer to home that other ports here in Florida and the itinerary was almost irrelevant.... the main purpose was to see if he liked cruising so we could do more of it in the future.  The only worthwhile stop, for us, was Cozumel...but that was O.K. as we're not really beach people anymore. We had a balcony room that was very nice.  Our room steward was attentive and accommodating.  The diningroom service was Excellent! ....and the food wasn't too bad either.  There were several good shows, including an Ice Skating Show, so the evening entertainment got a "thumbs up" from us.  I've only been on two other cruises, both on other cruise lines and Royal Caribbean is as good as either of them were.
